  • Dual-Crystal clocking features dedicated crystals for 44.1 / 88.2 / 176.4 kHz and 48 / 96 / 192 kHz sample rates, resulting in stunningly low jitter (under 10 picoseconds) for pure, artifact-free recordings and solid stereo imaging
  • HEXA Core UAD processing for tracking through models of vintage compressors, EQs, tape machines, mic preamps, and guitar amps with near-zero latency and 50% more DSP than earlier Apollos, all with no burden on your computer’s CPU
  • Unison technology nails the tone of sought-after tube and solid-state mic pres including their input impedance, gain-stage sweet spots, and the component-level circuit behaviors of the original hardware
  • Two high-speed Thunderbolt 3 ports for connectivity with Mac and Windows computers (Thunderbolt cable available separately)
  • 1 RU rackmount form factor with reliable AC powering (secure locking external power supply included)
  • Free industry-leading phone/online technical support from knowledgeable audio engineers

 

I/O for the Expanding Studio

 

  • 18×24 audio interface with four Unison-enabled microphone preamps, providing emulations of classic analog preamps with near-zero latency

  • 8×8 balanced analog line-level I/O via 1/4″ jacks

  • Additional eight 1/4″ line-level outputs may be used for feeding alternate monitor outputs, analog outboard processors, or a 7.1 surround sound speaker setup
  • Selectable operating level of +20 dBu or +24 dBu for out-of-the-box compatibility with professional mixing consoles and other high-end pro audio equipment
  • Four TOSLINK optical ports provide up to eight channels of ADAT I/O (supports SMUX) for integrating external converters, ADAT-equipped mic preamps, and headphone distribution systems
  • RCA coaxial ports enable recording and outputting S/PDIF stereo digital signal
  • BNC wordclock I/O with selectable 75-ohm termination, crucial for accurate synchronization with other digital equipment
